Pottermore Reveals What Time Range The Magical Quill Clue No. 3

Post image for Pottermore Reveals What Time Range The Magical Quill Clue No. 3 Will Be Posted

Some interesting news that a visitor alerted me to just recently about an announcement over at the Pottermore Insider blog concerning the time range of the next Magical Quill Clue No. 3. Thank you for your promptness in delivering this message.

According to the Pottermore blog the Magical Quill Clue No. 3 will be posted anywhere from 9:00am to 1:00pm BST (British Summer Time).

My main reason for this post is to clarify that this is British Time NOT the United States Time Zone.  If you do the conversions over to Eastern Time Zone we are talking about anywhere from 4:00am-8:00am in the morning. Again.

In order to help with the conversions here is a great link that converts time from one place to another in mostly all the time zones. For those people who are still have yet to register or have missed out on the clues all together you don’t want to take any chances.

I practiced some simple time conversions but you might want to double check yourself just to make sure.

09:00:00 a.m. Tuesday August 2, 2011 in Europe/London

converts to

04:00:00 a.m. Tuesday August 2, 2011 in America/New_York

With this you can see that the open window for the Magical Quill Clue No. 3 will be anywhere from 4:00am-8:00am Eastern Standard Time (New York).

  • Eastern Time: the posting window will be clue no. 3 will be 4:00am-8:00am
  • Central Time: the posting window for clue no. 3 will be 3:00am-7:00am
  • Mountain Time: the posting window will be 2:00am-6:00am
  • Pacific Time: the posting window will be 1:00am-5:00am




Again, I hope that you consider trying the conversions in your areas by following the above link. I would hate for people to have missed this open window once again. At least Pottermore is giving those people a chance to know that within a 4 hour period they will be posting the Magical Quill No. 3 clue. So keep Pottermore open at all times during these hours in your area.

Again, this could fit the pattern, next clue at 6:00am Eastern Time but not for certain. It could be back at 4:00am Eastern Time all over again.

Please comment about these time conversions if you like below and what time range you will have to be up in your area. This could help other people who are also in your area so they can make preparations to stay up if they are living in North and South America.

Q&A: Pottermore Clue Time?

Question by cello player: Pottermore Clue Time?
So I was waiting for the first clue for Pottermore to be released on the homepage and much to my dismay, I got online 30 minutes ago, 6:30 AM (central time), July 31, this morning, only to find, “Sorry, Day 1 registration is now closed.” Does anyone know the official time that the clue is released from London globally so this doesn’t happen to me again tomorrow?

Best answer:

Answer by Frank Jameso
it was at like 5am. the only reason I got it is because I couldn’t sleep. it was closed before 7am eastern.

I hear they’re just going to put it up at some random time so people aren’t just clicking refresh after midnight. I guess they want o make it more fair or something.

Daniel Radcliffe replaced by Glee star on Broadway

Glee's Darren Criss is headed back to BroadwayDarren Criss successfully made the transition from Broadway performer to Glee star — so why is he going back to the Great White Way? To take Daniel Radcliffe’s place as the star of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.

Producers wanted Criss as a replacement from the beginning, but they figured his grueling schedule on the hit Fox show would keep him signing on.

“Daniel gives an extraordinary performance eight times a week and we knew finding someone to fill his shoes would be nearly impossible. When we learned of Darren’s dream of performing on Broadway we knew we had found our Finch but presumed his Glee schedule would eliminate any chance to work with him,” director/choreographer Rob Ashford told Broadway World. “We are ecstatic and grateful to Ryan Murphy and his Glee team at 20th Century Fox TV for helping to make both Darren’s and our dream come true.”

 Criss’ will perform for three weeks — Jan. 3 through Jan 22, 2012. Radcliffe ends his run on January 1.

The Warbler played coy when he was asked about the rumors in an interview last week.

“People keep asking me about it, and it’s kind of cool that that’s out there in the world, but I cannot confirm anything at all. I mean, yeah, that would be really cool,” Criss said. “That’s certainly a wonderful role and a great show, and it would certainly be exciting to be a part of it. … But it’s definitely not confirmed by any means.”

Well, it is now. We’ll know he’ll put on a great show!

Will you take in Darren Criss’ performance on Broadway in January?

Daniel Radcliffe to Be Replaced in Broadway's 'How to Succeed in

Daniel Radcliffe will be stepping down from his run on Broadway’s How to Succeed in Business soon and taking over for him will be Glee‘s Darren Criss. But Darren should feel right at home as he’s used to playing Daniel’s roles!


Before Darren got his gig as Blaine Anderson on Glee, he was co-writing and performing in the YouTube musical parody hits “A Very Potter Musical” and “A Very Potter Sequel” as Daniel’s famous role as Harry Potter.

Now he’ll be taking on another role Daniel has played by starring as J. Pierrepont Fint in How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying on Broadway.

Darren will take on the role beginning in January for three weeks from Jan. 3 to 22, The Los Angeles Times reports.


The Broadway musical also stars Tony winner John Laroquette and Tammy Blanchard.

This will be Darren’s debut on Broadway! Are you excite to see him in this role?


Have You Received Your Hogwarts Letter Yet? « The Last Muggle to

Harry Potter is a fiction story. The wizarding world and all who populate it are nothing more than the magical dreams of a master storyteller. And yet, this hasn’t stopped a generation of children from wondering, if only for a moment, if their Hogwarts letters will arrive on their eleventh birthdays. Of course, they aren’t wholly surprised when the letters doesn’t show, but there is still that twinge of disappointment. Somewhere in the corners of their minds, they almost hoped to open the door and find an owl waiting, red-sealed letter in claw.

For those fans, the early registration for Pottermore is a chance to receive that long-awaited Hogwarts letter at last (though not so much by owl as by E-Mail). This is their opportunity to board the Hogwarts Express, don the Sorting Hat, and experience life as a young wizard first-hand.

It’s no wonder the 150,000 registrations open each day have been disappearing as if tossed in a Vanishing Cabinet.

When registration will open each day is anyone’s guess. Patience and the ability to stay up all hours of the night will certainly increase your chances of being online when the newest clue drops. As for the clues, the answers are always numbers from the books, filtered through a mathematical equation to avoid random guessing. For a more in-depth analysis of these numbers and their significance, check out this recent post on Harry Potter for Writers. I’m not a numbers person, so I’ll leave Susan to the mathematical analysis.

If you’re one of the lucky few who is awake when the newest clue is posted, the next step is figuring out the answer. I hear MuggleNet and Twitter (specifically hp_batsignal) are good bets. Afterward, you have to locate the Magical Quill, click on it, and wait for your confirmation E-Mail to arrive. At this point, you are also permitted to gloat.

As a Harry Potter blogger, I feel compelled to try my luck at an early registration. But as I mentioned yesterday, waking up early on the off-chance registration may be open sounds about as appealing as repotting Mandrakes.

I’m also beginning to doubt my initial hypothesis that registration will slow down as the week wears on. I’ve figured most major fans will scramble to register in the first three days. But this morning’s registration was only open for an hour before it reached the 150,000 muggle limit. That’s quite a bit faster than it went on Sunday morning.

We can chock Sunday up to a fluke. There was no way to be absolutely sure how registration would work and unless you heard rumors or just so happened to be up at an obnoxious time in the morning, you probably missed it. Personally, the whole thing completely slipped my mind. I figured I’d catch up sometime during the day, not realizing all the excitement was over before dawn.

This morning was the first full onslaught of fans. Word of how registration works spread quickly and now everyone knows what must be done to secure a place on the Hogwarts Express. It’s really no wonder registration was closed in a mere hour’s time.

But what are the chances things will still be this hectic come Thursday or Friday? The clues are supposed to get easier in order to open things up more. That implies even the Pottermore creators believe the tidal wave of diehard fans will already be registered by this point.

I would also think the schedule will be a lot more forgiving to American fans later in the week. This may be pure optimism, but the biggest complaint I’ve heard thus far is how registration currently favors Europe. It’s one thing to sit online waiting for registration to open in the middle of the day. It’s another thing entirely to pull such a stunt in the wee hours of the morning.

Again, maybe it’s just optimisim. Maybe I want the registration to be open later so I can actually make an attempt without disrupting my slumber. Maybe I want it open longer so I don’t have to wrestle with a refreshing browser and a timed-out webpage.

I guess we’ll see as the week progresses.

Evil genius?

Oh how exciting! I may finally see Darren Criss in person!

From Broadway World:

The producers of the 50th Anniversary production of the Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize-winning musical comedy HOW TO SUCCEED IN BUSINESS WITHOUT REALLY TRYING announced today that Darren Criss, breakout star of Fox’s Emmy and Golden Globe Award-winning smash hit television show “GLEE”, will make his Broadway debut as J. Pierrepont Finch, performing a strictly limited three week engagement from January 3, through January 22, 2012. He will replace Daniel Radcliffe, who will play his final performance on Sunday, January 1, 2012.

“Daniel gives an extraordinary performance eight times a week and we knew finding someone to fill his shoes would be nearly impossible. When we learned of Darren’s dream of performing on Broadway we knew we had found our Finch but presumed his “GLEE” schedule would eliminate any chance to work with him,” said director/choreographer Rob Ashford. “We are ecstatic and grateful to Ryan Murphy and his “GLEE” team at 20th Century Fox TV for helping to make both Darren’s and our dream come true.”
